Q:

What forces of flight are artificial and what is natural?

A:

The four forces of flight are all natural. They are lift, weight, drag, and thrust. All airplanes use the four forces for each successful flight! Lift helps a an airplane get in the air, weight helps an airplane stay in Earth's atmosphere, drag helps an airplane slow down, and thrust helps an airplane go forward!
